Publisher's Summary

A practical guide to letting go of the character defects that get in the way of true and joyful recovery.

Resentment. Fear. Self-pity. Intolerance. Anger. As Bill P. explains, these are the "rocks" that can sink recovery - or at the least, block further progress. Based on the principles behind "Steps Six and Seven", Drop the Rock combines personal stories, practical advice, and powerful insights to help listeners move forward in recovery. The second edition features additional stories and a reference section.

Poor Recording

As a book, Drop the Rock is awesome...so incredibly helpful.
But this recording is choppy....tail end of sentences are clipped....and hence it is incredibly distracting from the book's message.
Yes, I tried it on multiple devices. It's in the recording. Too bad... The written version of the book is worth the time!

Irregular

The recording does not naturally flow. It's choppy and sporadic, pausing in the middle of a sentence.

Part of my ongoing survival

My sponsor had me read this and I’m really glad I did. However, I wish I or someone else could re-record this. The skips, the mistakes, the edits are all left in. It’s very distracting!

Bad Reader

Narrator does a poor job, causing the messages to sometimes get lost. Buy the hard copy instead. (Also, the last hour of mine kept skipping.)

One of the best recovery books available

Have read this book in paperback multiple times. While it's not AA conference-approved literature, it's Hazelden and provides critical perspectives on 2 of the most important steps of the 12, and two that sometimes are not adequately treated as individuals work through their program. I have been in 2 AA groups where individuals from the group meet informally and apart from AA meetings to discuss these steps guided, in part, by this book. If you are looking for insights to steps 6 and 7 this is a very helpful resource. It's read compellingly by Derik Hendrickson.

Book skips multiple words making it difficult.

Can't completely understand the book because the recording is glitching and shipping multiple words throughout. May have to return this copy and find another one.

Don’t Skip a Step

A bit of irony. Or maybe a joke I couldn’t get to.
What’s going on with Chapter 10?
The audio skips and skips; making it impossible to follow along.
The first 9 chapters were great.
The constant skipping in the 10th ruined the performance;(
It’s not like I was jogging with my Walkman.
I hope this error can be corrected for future downloads.
Best of luck!

What a great book. I really related

It’s exactly where I’m at in my recovery. Chapter 10 was a bit jumpy with sentences cutoff throughout the reading but I could still understand the message. If you don’t walk away with a new outlook on your recovery, you may need to listen again.
